SCC respond to additional COVID-19 funding for Scottish Government

Following the announcement that a further £1.1 billion in COVID-19 funding will be allocated to the Scottish Government from the UK Treasury, Dr Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce said:

“We need the Scottish Government to engage with business as soon as possible to ensure that this funding is allocated appropriately to support businesses urgently. We must see every penny released quickly without delay. Businesses and jobs face catastrophe otherwise.

“This funding also needs to be aligned with a plan to ease restrictions. This must be done in a way that is directly linked to getting as many businesses back open as much as possible. Having the means to plan to re-open is our only hope and will be crucial to supporting businesses to rebuild our economy which has been devastated by the pandemic.’’
